Re: Green lobby failure

To pay the true cost of the device over its entire life cycle.

I'm sorry, I was talking about the 100% green tax. Correct me if I am wrong, but where I live the tax goes to to government not the company So how taxing me more is going to pay for the tue cost of the device?

And what's this 'true cost' of the device? Let's take a phone, for example. Are you implying that the price I pay for it in the store (unlocked and without a contract) is not the true cost? Do I have to add the price of the SIM, the price of electricity for charging it? The SD card I buy to expand the crappy storage?

Oh, wait, you're saying all the manufacturers are selling devices below the true cost?
